Artist's Description

Click on image to enlarge.

I noticed this odd juxtaposition early last winter ~ the small Cobble Hill Cemetery is located on the main highway just south of Boston, Erie County, NY, & is filled with recognizable local families including Dyes & Drakes, Algers & Hatches. It is a well-maintained graveyard with some interesting old stones. But when the leaves are off the trees, something outre emerges – this large house with its magnificent splashes of paint. The road runs along a narrow ridge between a creekbed & an abrupt wooded slope, & this house is at creek level. As a result, it rises fully fledged behind the cemetery – no foundations or driveways or plantings to be seen, just COLOR. Or colour, if you will. I waited until today – all the snow is gone, last autumn’s cornflake leaves have reappeared, & this was my chance. And this vision’s Easter Egg appeal was irresistible. 31 March 2010.
